The Ruby Cordy Award

Established by Ruby Cordy, B.A. '34, M.A. '42. On graduation (1934) I received a "French Exchange" Scholarship which allowed me to spend the following year in France. My whole life has been enriched by that year with its opportunity not only of further study but also a chance to further my acquaintance with theatre, opera, classical music, museums, etc, as well as travel to other parts of the country and to Italy.

I was the "repetitrice anglaise" at the Ecole Normale de St-Germain-en-Laye (not far from Paris) with ample time to attend at the Sorbonne a course in phonetics (French) given especially to foreign students who planned to teach French on returning to their respective countries.
